As of Sept 22, 11:24am UTC-4, the review queue is at 306:
This seems outrageous. 209 close items, 37 first posts, a smattering of others (which don't add to near 306)
That's just a lot of work. Going through the Low Quality queue tends to reduce the total one-to-one (nice!).
Going through the Close Votes queue is more like 6 to 1 (20 reviewed, only 3 or 4 removed).
- Is 306 bad? (I think so)
- How are there so many close suggestions? That is how do they get on the queue? By a single close vote by someone?
- The others are pretty algorithmic right? First post easy, low quality - some measure of length and other metrics. But does everybody get the same queue? (e.g. if I complete the first post queue, does everybody else's queue go down? (5 votes are needed to close, what about the other queues?)
- To get them off the close queue, we need more people reviewing. How do we do that?
Update: Wow...thanks everyone for paying attention to this...as of a week later from posting, we're down to ~70. Keep going!!
Update 2 an hour later: Wow...WTH. Did I say something wrong?
(this seems like a crazy jump. Someone must be doing something special.
